MFT September Release – New Product Launch

Hey there! Thanks for joining me for the My Favorite Things September Release New Product Launch!

New Product Launch

Today, I am sharing two cards with you – one featuring the Stitched Oval Frame Die-Namics and one showcasing the Fleur de Lis Background – I used them separately, but I think they could also work quite well together! Both cards were created using some ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Pens – here’s the card that features the Stitched Oval Frames:

I basically die-cut a few of these ovals out of some white cardstock, and loosely watercoloured them with the ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Pens.

I then arranged the oval rings on a card front, making a few snips along the way to make it look like some rings were interlocked with others.

When I was satisfied with the arrangement, I foam mounted the rings to the card front, and trimmed off any excess.

I stamped some of the images from the Soda Pop set with black dye ink – the sentiment was stamped onto a strip of black cardstock, sprinkled with white embossing powder and heat set. To finish, I adhered a few sequins.

Here’s the card that features the Fleur de Lis Background:

I love how the background came together so quickly – I began by stamping the Fleur de Lis pattern with Versamark ink onto a piece of white cardstock and heat set with white embossing powder.

I then swiped a rainbow selection of ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Pens along the top of the cardstock, down to about a quarter of the way down. I then spritzed liberally with a solution of Perfect Pearls and water.

The water reacts beautifully with the markers and blends the colours together so well, while trickling down the card.

I trimmed the inky panel down with the largest frame die from Blueprints 25 and adhered it down to a card base. I then die-cut the Streetlights Die-Namics out of some black cardstock, and adhered one of them down to the card.

I stamped one of the words from Label Maker Sentiments onto a scrap piece of cardstock, fussy cut out and tucked it behind the street light.

Thanks for joining me this week while we showcased the September Release products! Be sure to check out the amazing projects from the rest of the MFT Design Team members for more inspiration on the My Favorite Things blog 😉

    Your cards are just gorgeous! I love the idea with the oval frames interlocked with just swipes of colour, I am going to have to try that, I love the look. Love how you created the second card as well with all the bright colours. I have really enjoyed all your cards this week, they have been awesome!

    the first card is fun and happy.
    Love the way the colors are hit and miss.

    FANTASTIC, your first card is over-the-top creative, and I love the watercolor you’ve done on both cards!

    I would never have thought of using the oval Die-namics in this way… Must root around my dies to see if I can use this technique with some of them! Love your second card too, great drips!
